ALEXIS STRUM | Nothing Good About This Goodbye

LYRICS:

I guess I should say
What is on the tip of my tongue
'Cos I've seen how it aches
When you've missed your chance
The time's gone

Snap decisions cause you so much pain
Then you come round again
And there's nothing left at all
Perfect vision now I'm running blind
Too scared of what I'll find
When you call

Only now I've let go
Honey I just don't know
Sit right here
And watch the sky above for a sign
Tell me, will you miss me
When I'm in your history baby
There ain't nothing good about this goodbye

If you are the one
This regret will last forever
'Cos nobody knows
If we should stay together

Snap decisions cause you so much pain
Then you come round again
And there's nothing left at all
Selfish, but I think it's for the best
I'll miss you for the rest
Of my life

Only now I've let go
Honey I just don't know
Sit right here
And watch the sky above for a sign
Tell me will you miss me
When I'm in your history baby
There ain't nothing good about this goodbye

Snap decisions cause you so much pain
Then you come round again
And there's nothing left at all
Selfish, but I think it's for the best
I'll miss you for the rest
Of my life

Only now I've let go
Honey I just don't know
Sit right here
And watch the sky above for a sign
Tell me will you miss me
When I'm in your history baby
There ain't nothing good about this goodbye

REVIEWS:
x A classy pop song is hard to find. They try, (oh how they try!) thinking that all they need are a few polished chords or a glacial electro number to leave behind their sordid, thrusting pasts and win my affections. How wrong they are! For every Kelly of the Clarkson variety, thereís, well, a Kelly of the Osbourne breed. Polished precision? Sure, but what about that spark of brilliance, that echo of the divine that leaves a shimmer in your spine?
Alexis has it.
A dreamy, understated song, this will take a few listens, but give it that chance. Because when it clicks into place, itís perfect: swooping, soft and melodic, with the infectious lilt of summer breeze. And then the world drops out, and heavier electro effects fall into place; giving a drive and power that are wonderfully incongruous with that same sweet vocal until they blend back into synthetic dreams.
